Which colour Pashmina?

Okay - so my ball gown is this colour

The first blue dress and similar in cut apart from the side rose and cut away material.

I have a matching taffetta shawl but it's stiff and I'd prefer a soft pashmina to wrap around my shoulders.

Firstly, would it look okay to mix materials and secondly, what colour/shade would look good.

I have sparkly silver shoes but they probably won't be seen.

what about this silver grey pashmina?

WowOoo Wed 15-Jun-11 11:29:17

Yes to the grey. Very classy.
Mixing materials fine.

Don't know what colour hair you have or handbag or little bit of jewellry, but with those colours a nice splash of red/orange/green - something bold to accent it. Whatever suits you!

My house is a mousy fair, I'd say.

I was thinking a silver clutch but maybe you're right about the differnet splash of colour - I'm not very good when it comes to co-ordinating bags/shoes/wraps etc

this bag?

vintageteacups Wed 15-Jun-11 11:36:12

actually the bag looks huge - like that but smaller then?

vintageteacups Wed 15-Jun-11 11:37:37

Do I mean clutch bag? A small rectangle one that you just hold in your hand? Or is called something else?

vintageteacups Wed 15-Jun-11 11:39:08

maybe it's a clutch purse ??

WowOoo Wed 15-Jun-11 11:41:59

Clutch if you don't have that much stuff. (too small for me, but very dainty)

Take all the stuff with you when you go to get a bag and ask shop assistant who looks nice. Try on shoes even if you're not going to buy. Good if someone can see the colours together.
If it's a minky grey it might not look good with silver.
Or colour splash with nails, little hair slide anything!
Happy shopping, you lucky lady.

Thank wowoo - so do you mean the silver grey wrap might not tone with my silver shoes?

WowOoo Wed 15-Jun-11 11:45:13

Pale ish orange pashmina may be nice with navy and silver?

vintageteacups Wed 15-Jun-11 11:46:16

not good with orange - I have pale skin with pinky undertones and fell a bit "look at me everybody!!!" if I wear orange grin

WowOoo Wed 15-Jun-11 11:47:21

No - forget what i said last. You'd need different shoes.
Think I should go away until someone else comes along to suggest.

And yeah I meant that if it was minky beigey grey.Silver grey OK for sure!

I think the splash of red for the bag is a great idea though.

WowOoo Wed 15-Jun-11 11:48:06

Green then? Would that suit?

vintageteacups Wed 15-Jun-11 11:48:33

WowOoo Wed 15-Jun-11 11:48:40
